Davido has been buzzing all year around for all his different singles, and features and for good reason to. His soon to be released album, The Baddest, is the most anticipated of 2016.
Once this tune, DODO, dropped yesterday, I gave it a little bit of time for the initial hype to settle before listening to it, and on first listen, honestly I was blown away. It almost seems like Davido has some magic juice, or he has done jazz somewhere cos some of his joints just enter straight in before you even know what’s happening. Listening further though, I decided to really work through the song.
The lyrics could’ve been much better I must say. It is eminent/girl this your back you gat element/to my resident – is not exactly the most creative of lines. However the beat from Kid Dominant, and the overall composition of the song (chorus, melody, etc) makes you get so lost that you don’t remember the lyrics are lacking. It’s very infectious.
Overall, this one has hit written all over it. It is very reminiscent of his 2014 hit, Aye, but we’ll have to wait and see if it gets to the same heights. For me though, it’s in straight to the playlist, and in rotation to put a smile on my Tuesday.
